I just ordered one of these paddles from Superiorkayaks. I'll post a review as soon as it arrives (whenever that's going to be, i ordered it yesterday.) Does anyone here use one, or a 1-piece from Superiorkayaks?
I'm gonna bump this thread up, see if I can get some more opinions. I'm curious to try a GP style padde, but I'm totally spoiled with my ultralight Werner carbon fiber Kalliste. Obviously this model is way expensive but, other than that, I'd love any input. It'd primarily be used with a LH Mark 1. Would the 90" model be long enough? I have no experience with GPs at all.
I didn't like using 89" GP with MK1 (2-piece FC Klatwa). GP "likes" low and narrow hulls, this is where it works the best. Wide cockpit of MK1 with high wooden coaming was getting in the way. May be longer GP would work better, I didn't have a chance to try, as decided to sell Mk1 after a season and keep Kahuna. Klatwa is roughly 30-40% heavier than Superior - about 37oz VS reportedly 26oz of Superior, this is a big difference, but it costs 2 or 3 times less.
Thanks Alm. After reading a little more, it was sounding like a GP would work better with skinnier boats. I think I'll stick with my Werners.
